MONARCH, PA


Some of the remaining company-built homes at Leisenring No. 3, now called Monarch. The Connellsville Coke and Iron Co. built the patch in 1886. H.C. Frick Coke Co. took over in 1890, and the mine was idled in 1928. During World War 2 the Leisenring No. 3 mine was reactivated, only to be abandoned once and for all in 1961.
